From this distance, it does appear that corruption in America is rampant.
Smollett, Johnson and Johnson, Hollywood kids getting into University through back door payments, fictional dossiers used to spy on a Presidential candidate, Avenneti scamming clients...
That's most likely because American news makes it to every country in the world, and often even gets precedence over the new of that country itself.
Smollett was about race, so sort of unique to the US. The Dossier is serious business, but its an indication of leftists in America having utterly lost their minds.
Bribing people and lawyers scamming people happens everywhere.
